Description

As an emulsion in water, PVAC emulsions are used as adhesives for porous materials, particularly for wood, paper, and cloth, and as a consolidant for porous building stone, in particular sandstone.

Uses:

  • As wood glue PVAC is known as "white glue" and the yellow as "carpenter's glue" or PVA glue.
  • as paper adhesive during paper packaging converting
  • In bookbinding and book arts, due to its flexible strong bond and non-acidic nature (unlike many other polymers). The use of PVAc on the Archimedes Palimpsest during the 20th century greatly hindered the task of disbinding the book and preserving and imaging the pages in the early 21st century, in part because the glue was stronger than the parchment it held together.
  • in handicrafts
  • as envelope adhesive
  • as wallpaper adhesive

as a primer for drywall and other substrates
